Getting back on track and refocused
Loss of confidence can derail a successful job search and hurt a job seeker’s marketability and successful reentry into the job market. To get refocused and back on track, focus on your greatest assets. Years of work and practical experience have given you many marketable skills, so make sure that you are advertising these skills to the people that can utilize them.
Get out and network! Isolation will lower your spirits and keep you from connecting with people who can assist you in getting a job. During this time, increase your reading within your area of expertise. Get magazine subscriptions to trade and general business magazines in your area of employability. No matter what business you’re in, there are trade magazines to help you improve professionally. Trade magazines help keep you current with your industry. Your biggest problem will be that there is never enough time to read them all!
